russia moving their troops in? i would hope russia would think twice before doing that. >> let me ask you, a number of your republican colleagues have put together the russian aggression prevention act of 2014 to strengthen nato, new rounds of sanctions, do things like force the president to move forward with missile defense in europe which was tabled essentially. could you support something like that? what do you think is the right move? >> absolutely. we all need to find out how -- sanctions are by far the best way for us to go. by far. because nobody wins in these land wars, if you will. and we've proven it's not something we have an appetite for. with that being said we know that sanctions do work. they worked in iran, we doubled down in iran and made them tighter. i think that will happen. can we force russia to come to their senses because economically they can't stand what we can do to them? can we go after their energy market, which is at the heart of who they are. it's the pulse of what they have going on right now. and they're using that to their advantage. everything an

you have a lot of folks who are villagers who feel much more aligned with russia than they do with the ukrainian government back in kiev who they say is nothing more than folks who have taken power illegitimately and look to russia. it's a very poor part of the country over here, a lot of miners and a lot of folks who work very hard for a living and think kiev is out of touch and will have a much better lot with moscow there. how much the russian government is supporting them in terms of sending weapons verse advisers, that's up for debate. it's hard to get hard facts but they certainly look to mother russia for their protection. a number of russian flags flying at the choibts and obviously over the buildings that they have taken speaks to that for sure where their loyalties lie. >> thank you very much, leland vittert. >> more here on the developing crisis in ukraine is former u.n. ambassador to the united nations john bolton. senior fellow at the american enterprise institute and fox news contributor. you've seen that the prime minister said that russia is waging, quote, a real wa

outside of russia itself, he's trying to say to the government in kiev, you have to take our interests into account. and these efforts that he's undertaken in eastern ukraine and now in odessa in the southwestern part of the country in the pro-russian areas, i think are all claimed at that point. perhaps to the point of delegitimizing the may elections that secretary kerry was referring to. >> and you know what concerns so many people here, from east to west, south to north in ukraine, we are seeing an escalation in violence, and an intensity of detention going on there. where do you see this ending? >> i think what putin would like to see is the ukrainian nationalist element in the country cut a deal with the pro-russian elements that is acceptable to moscow. that would involve a substantial devolution of power away from the central government in kiev toward the provinces, which would give russian much more sway over the pro-russian areas. but if he can't get that, i think his plan b. is a further partition. so the insertion of what are clearly russian special forces, russia
